An Attractive Hardscape Integrates Your Home Into the Mountains

A well-designed and constructed hardscape provides social and sacred space, gardening opportunity and access improvement, while meeting functional challenges such as correct drainage and slope retention.  Beautiful in all seasons, hardscapes are permanent and require little or no maintenance.

In combination with thoughtful plantings, our stone creations provide natural playgrounds, dining and meditation areas, as well as outstanding opportunities for wildlife viewing.  A water feature can literally become an oasis for birds, pollinators, small mammals and reptiles.  In some cases, we are able to modify and improve existing land features such as, streams, springs or drainages, using materials available on site.

Hardscapes Requires Muscle

Proper hardscaping requires heavy lifting and the ability to work to scale.  We often encounter and reconstruct failing hardscapes installed without proper design input, skill or muscle.  We’ve  developed a working philosophy, Integrated Land Management, that assists us in providiing superior service in aspects of good hardscaping including: planning, permitting, materials selection and handling, installation and re-vegetation.

We maintain a full battery of large and small equipment, and are capable of installations from subtle garden accents and sculptural gestures to dramatic crane sets.  We work in multiple states and have compiled one of the most unique and expansive portfolios in the industry.  Want to learn more?  Call or email – we love to show off our original creations and will be happy to spend time with you.
